Plaswijck Park playground
This family park is much more than just a playground, despite the fact that it is mostly play that kids can do at Plaswijckpark. For example, you have several playgrounds located throughout the park, where the kids can play. There is also a small section in the park with animals. Among other things, you have deer, Wallabies and Alpacas to admire in this park.
It is also possible to take a tour boat on a small lake, there is a little train that kids can ride on, and there is also a gnome trail that you can follow with young children.
In the summer months, it is additionally possible for kids to have fun with water. For example, there is a water playground where kids can have fun during the hot summer months. This too looked very nice. We visited the park in the winter, so unfortunately this part of the park was not open then. You can also then get on the water with a pedal boat in the shape of a swan.
Indoor playground Plaswijckpark
The fact that you can visit Plaswijckpark Rotterdam both with good and bad weather has to do with the different indoor playgrounds that this family park in Rotterdam has. For example, they have a really cool big indoor playground, with all kinds of big objects. For example, there is a giant TV, couch and toilet bowl for kids to play with.
This kind of playground equipment is just a little different from what we are normally used to. This is already a pretty large indoor playground with several areas for kids to play. In this section alone, our daughter had a great time for more than an hour. And that could have been a lot longer if the park wasn’t already about to close.
A second indoor playground where kids can have fun is at the back of the park. This is a somewhat smaller room and here is mainly lots of toys, which kids can have fun with. Especially with young kids, this is an area, where they can have a great time in the park for an entire afternoon.
Plaswijck Park Traffic Square
The Plaswijck Park in Rotterdam also has a very fun traffic square for kids, in addition. This traffic plaza is quite large and has quite a few buildings through which the kids can ride go-karts, among other things. Because this traffic square is well shielded, you can keep a close eye on the kids when they are playing here.
Our daughter spent quite some time here riding around on a go-kart, while we watched her from a bench along the traffic garden. This traffic square consists of two sections. You have a smaller section for young kids and a larger section for the slightly older kids.
Restaurant Plaswijckpark Rotterdam
Of course, it is also possible to have something to eat and drink at the Plaswijck Park in Rotterdam. You have several catering establishments where you can get something to eat and drink. Of course, the regular dishes you often find in amusement parks such as pancakes, sandwiches and fries are the ones you can eat here.
For example, you also have a restaurant sitting by the indoor playground, so after lunch the kids can go play by themselves in this indoor playground in the park while you can have another drink. You are allowed to bring your own food and drink when you visit the park.

Where to stay in Rotterdam with kids?
The Plaswijck Park in Rotterdam is not the only children’s activity you can do in Rotterdam. There are enough activities in town to keep the family entertained for at least a week. Therefore, if you want to make a city break of it and take a weekend trip to Rotterdam, there are certainly great options for staying overnight! We list some of these options where we ourselves have slept.
Hostel Room Rotterdam: very nice hostel, where there is a relaxed atmosphere. The hostel also has a family room for families.
SS Rotterdam: this hotel is a sight in itself. You sleep on an old cruise ship, and there is plenty to do on the ship itself. We really enjoyed spending a night here.
Hotel The James Rotterdam: this is a luxury hotel right in the center of Rotterdam. We found this hotel very welcoming and also rented bikes here at the hotel.
Urban Residences: one of the nicest apartments we ever slept in was from this organization. They have beautiful apartments right in the center, where there really is everything. We thought this was a super nice experience to spend a night here in all that luxury.
